Follow what happened at BBC Electric Proms on Wednesday 24th Oct

Watch 6 Music's Julie Cullen's round-up of Wednesday

18.51 from Dingwalls

The audience eagerly await Blanche in the moodily lit cavern of Dingwalls.

19.23 from KOKO

The stage is set. It's got to be Battles' gear. There's a solitary crash cymbal poking up like a bashful sunflower.

19.34 from Cecil Sharp House

The Cecil Sharp house is packed to the gills in anticipation of an evening of Sigur Ros saturation.

19.35 from Roundhouse

The Coral kick off Electric Proms with 'Who's Gonna Find Me'. It ends with the first cheer of the night.

19.49 from Electric Ballroom

Mary Anne Hobbs comes on stage. "Tonight is about two words: JOHN PEEL!" She then welcomes first act Radio Luxembourg on stage. We're off!

19.47 from Dingwalls

More and more people are cramming into Dingwalls in anticipation of Charlie Louvin.

19.54 from Electric Ballroom

"Agaskodo Teliverek are like the B52's meet The Cure!" says someone near me. Good call!

19.59 from Roundhouse

Noel Gallagher joins the band on stage for 'In The Rain'. Surprised gasps and cheers from crowd.

20.13 from KOKO

Atlas is COLOSSAL. Tyondai is doing some interpretative dance shiznit... Battles are handing out grins to the front row.

20.19 from Cecil Sharp House

Aminna, string quartet join for 'Heima'. This drawn out tune is the signature of the night. It's a little bit Philip Glass, a little bit Michael Nyman. Lovely.

21.03 from KOKO

A string quartet.. No, no, a string 'trio' has come onstage. Confirmation: Editors have strings. Budget strings but strings nonetheless.

21.36 from Roundhouse

Mark Ronson is dressed in a dapper suit, the orchestra bods are all sporting bow-ties, will there ever be a better attired Electric Proms gig?

21.37 from Electric Ballroom

A dappled spotlight, a moody tune and Siouxsie Sioux. It's what goth dreams are made of!

22.12 from Cecil Sharp House

Curlews sing through the mist during 'Heima'. Jonsi of Sigur Ros says of all the places in the whole world, he loves Iceland most.

22.36 from Dingwalls

Charlie Louvin is singing a goodbye song to a rapt crowd. What a star.

22.43 from Roundhouse

One more song. Mark and several of his special guests unite for The Beatles' 'We Can Work It Out', with a Stevie Wonder inspired funk touch.
